Jamie Carragher names one factor that is really holding Arsenal back from winning the title

One aspect of Arsenal’s roster that Jamie Carragher has revealed is preventing the Gunners from winning the championship.

Pep Guardiola won his fourth Premier League title in a row as his north London team forced Manchester City to play in the season’s final match, which both challengers won.

Mikel Arteta’s team can hardly be blamed for their efforts considering the records Arsenal has set this season; once again, the Gunners have come up short of matching City’s output over the course of a 38-game season.

And Carragher believes one reason could be behind Arsenal missing out on the title.

According to Carragher, Arsenal’s attacking three is insufficient to win the championship.

The former Liverpool defender said on Stick to Football that Arsenal’s front three, in comparison to City’s, may have played a significant role in the north London team’s narrow Premier League exit.

Throughout the season, Arsenal’s front line saw numerous changes, with the exception of Bukayo Saka on the right. Leandro Trossard replaced Gabriel Martinelli, and Kai Havertz took over as the primary attacker.

Even though Arsenal scored a lot of goals in the second half of the season, Carragher hypothesized that the north London team’s lack of true firepower may have contributed to some of its points being dropped throughout the campaign. This is because Arsenal has more options than City.

Carragher said: “When I see the front three at the end of the season, who were all brilliant, I see that front three and think ‘can Trossard, Havertz and Saka as a front-three, is that winning the league?’ I look at City and I see Haaland, De Bruyne, Foden, that’s next level.”

Arsenal is aware that this summer they must address the attack.

Arsenal is faced with an intriguing conundrum: their attack hasn’t looked this fluid and free-scoring in a while, but they obviously need more players this summer.

The majority of the season has shown that Arsenal lacks a killer finisher, with Trossard possibly the only player who fits this description given Martinelli’s disastrous form.

Arsenal must thus deal with this issue head-on this summer and find suitable replacements for players like Saka, who faces burnout at the end of the following campaign.
